Hold on.This is my third day off morphine.Yes im miserable.But most of my w/d symptoms r gone.Showers,hot baths,pedialite,ensure,walk ,i marched n plac.It helps the spasms.THE hallucinations r few.But i know its a w/d symptom and it will pass.Hubby actually helped me out.He just has to wait it out.Cotton clothes as someone suggested to me.Lots of showers.And try to keep him hydrated.Today i finally could eat a little.I made myself drink.Its hard on him and u r a great wife for helping.He and u r n my r.thoughts.I can do this. zSo can he.3 days is wonderful.Its a big step.Keep me posted.He is going to be hateful.I am.For 3 days i have been horrid.Bare with him hun.Ty for helping.
